Pale amber in colour. The bouquet shows a rare mix of nuts, fruits, floral, and peat. The first thing I get is a pronounced aroma of peat, smoke and Japanese seaweed crisps but heavier on almonds. After that are light to medium aromas of gooseberries, chamomile tea, Fuji apples, banana chips, Japanese pears, honey, toffee, and lemon and lime peels. The palate brings smoke and peat that don’t really linger. After that are finish shows grilled limes and lemons, guava jelly, honeysuckle, ash, grilled green bell peppers, honey, and cloves.

Nestled on ancient granite rocks alongside the Sound of Islay channel, the village of Port Askaig has long been considered the gateway to Islay - from settlers and traders of the past to the tourists and whisky explorers of today. Much like its namesake, Port Askaig Single Malt whiskies are the gateway to this beautiful island. Named after the port known as the gateway to Islay, a single malt that reflects the character of the island. This refined, balanced liquid
offers Islay’s distinctive salinity and peat smoke.
